SHERMAN, TX - A fire that destroyed a Sherman family's home last night is believed to be started by an appliance.
Sherman fire marshal Nathan Huffman says two of the residents found the bathroom water heater in flames. Firefighters arrived at the scene just after 6:20 Friday night and found the home fully engulfed.
Huffman says, because the house has been remodeled several times it was difficult for firefighters to get to the flames when it reached the attic.
The blaze was contained after two hours, but the home was a total loss.
There were no injuries and the family of 9 were in Dallas attending the Sherman game at the time of the fire.
